Santander rewards nineteen projects developed by student groups

Rewarding and encouraging merit, talent, time management skills, creativity and achievement is quite simple when we look at projects developed by Técnico student groups. The Santander Universities Award Ceremony took place this Monday, 16th December. 19 projects entirely designed and developed by Técnico students received financial support.

“Our students are one of our main driving forces, not only for their academic quality, but also for the activities they develop here, which are very enriching and makes us very proud”, said professor Luís Castro, Vice-president of Técnico for Financial Management.

Engineer Marcos Ribeiro, Head of Santander Universities, shared “I am very pleased to attend this ceremony, delivering these awards that recognise some projects that are now taking their first steps. We have been following some of these projects for some time and we are honoured to see them growing exponentially”. These student groups are, in fact, the driving force of Técnico”, he stressed.

“I would like to congratulate you on your work, your ability to excel, your ability to create”, said Francisca Simões, Student vice-president of the Pedagogic Board (CP), who highlighted the importance of these awards as a “way of recognising and encouraging these ideas and their implementation”. The student thanked Santander “for supporting these projects with such a positive impact on students, school and society”.

The students presented their projects and results. “We would like to thank you for this opportunity. This award is the recognition of our work and it is really important”, stressed Sara Barroso, team member of JEEC.
